The Better Team Won

The Super Bowl was an utter and complete disappointment for me. Living in the New England area as I do, it was only natural that I’d be rooting for the New England Patriots even while most of the country rooted for the New York Giants because, as we all know, everybody likes an underdog.

I give credit to the Giants for playing a great game. Their defense was suffocating, which essentially won them the game, in my opinion. And let’s be honest, the Giants had a lot of luck on their side too. But they had one thing the Patriots clearly did not: the indefatigable spirit to win, which clearly manifested itself in almost every play.

Congrats to the Giants! And to the Patriots: better luck next season.
